"Steel Race Reuse" is a 72-hour competition by the Swedish Architects and the Steel Building Institute for architects and architectural students.
"With our contribution "Samklang" we want to convey how steel can be strong, firm, heavy and silent, but also light, soft, neat and sounding. The guiding principles for the design come from the play with classic and modern architecture for which the concert hall stands model", says Anton Magnusson.
The winning contribution will be built and will be in place in front of the Concert Hall in Stockholm during The Architecture Gala 2019.
"To enable reuse, all materials are standard products. Besides the fact that these products can be recycled, there is also an aesthetic possibility. Instead of hiding, painting or dressing the steel, this is shining with its raw materiality", says Anton Magnusson.
The three best proposals were presented and awarded during the Architectural Gala and will also be described in the next issue of the journal Stålbyggnad.
